The students

Minimum age
18 years

Private courses are ideal to achieve specific objectives. They are particularly suitable for professionals who need to acquire language skills specific to their fields of activity, for students who wish to prepare for an examination, and for anyone wishing to broaden their knowledge of French to meet their specific needs. In your teacher’s home, you will benefit from unique learning conditions. For instance, discussions, over meals or at other times, and visits will be conducted exclusively in the target language. Living with your teacher implies that every single moment will be put to good use to reach your objectives, not only during the lessons, but also whenever you are with your teacher during the day. You will experience full immersion, without a chance to speak in your mother tongue. Your teacher will be there to help you with your difficulties, at your own pace, since you will be his one and only student (unless you choose the programme for two students: see options).

« Ich habe erhebliche Fortschritte gemacht, insbesondere im Sprechen und Verstehen, aber auch in der Grammatik, für die seit der Schulzeit wenig Zeit verwendet hatte. Ebenfalls Fortschritte gab es beim Lesen und Schreiben.Eine Hilfe waren neben den Lektionen die Gespräche am Tisch und der Aufenthalt im Sprachgebiet ganz allgemein. Beziffern kann ich die Fortschritte nicht. »

Att gå på kurs "hemma hos läraren" tycker jag var en alldeles utmärkt kursform!Mina allmänna intryck av landet har jag dock bildat mig vid ett flertal tidigare besök. Inte helt säker på nivån som jag hamnade på - men mina testresultat hade förbättrats betydligt från första till sista dagen och min lärare verkade nöjd med mig :=) En alldeles utmärkt vänlig och omtänksam värdinna som gjorde allt för att få sin elev att känna sig väl mottagen.

« Ja - jag har framför allt fått bättre hörförståelse. Svårt att nöta bort gamla felaktigheter som jag nött in genom att mest prata franska i Burkina Faso där jag inte precis fått någon språklig vägledning men trots hemska fel i mitt språk dock kunnat göra mig förstådd- men flera av dessa fel kan jag nu i alla fall upptäcka i mitt eget användande av språket och kommer att fortsätta att arbeta på att få bort. Det har också varit mycket lätt att prata med mme Pouré - hon är en pratsam person men lyssnar också och hon är intresserad av sina medmänniskor. »

« Måste bara säga att privatlärare är lyx. Specialanpassade lektioner efter dina önskemål. Du kan fråga om vad som helst när som helst. Min lärare var mycket mån om att jag skulle lära mig så mycket som möjlig under de 2 veckor jag var där. Jag får även nu efter kursen mejla frågor om jag vill. Jag har fått en grundlig genomgång av fransk grammatik som kommer att underlätta mina fortsatta studier. »
School highlights
« Undervisning hemma hos läraren ger mycket mer än ökade kunskaper i språket. Man får en inblick i livet i en fransk familj det franska samhällets skillnader och likheter med det svenska. »

In the teacher's home
Living in the teacher's home allows you to practise the language in first class conditions. Since compatibility is very important for guaranteeing the success of the course, you will be asked to fill in a questionnaire concerning your preferences, interests and possible requirements to help us find the ideal teacher for you. You will stay in a single room (double room with the “one-to-two” option). On request and at a charge, you can enjoy a private bathroom.

Make the most of your free time to explore French culture, on your own or together with your private teacher. Your teacher can give you tips to enjoy the best of the area and offer you activities after lessons, depending on his/her availability and your wishes. Activities can include sports, cultural visits or excursions to surrounding towns – ideal to practise French while learning more about the local lifestyle!
